Hello, I wanted to try Suffolk pointes for years, so now after Chrismas I may FINALLY do that... As Mark Suffolk worked for FREED, and as FREED Studios look similar, I was wondering if the sizing is similar? So when I have 6.5 D with Freeds Studios Professionals, would that be size 6.5 and width X, XXN, XX, XXXN, XXX, XXXXN with Suffolk?

Are Suffolk standard shanks (eg. Solo, Spotlight) harder/softer/same as Studios standard shanks?

Do the SOLO PREQUEL have an angled platform (does anyone have a photo) like some FREEDs? The Solo Prequel is said to help going over a little further on pointe, so I thought they might have an angeled platform...

And is the SOLO more tapered than the SPOTLIGHT?

THANKS

Carola
